    The AR sites in our experience get active in 12 weeks of incubation time and the fishers can test their sites using baited hooks. Based on the natural fishery grounds and the reefs areas in the vicinity it is ideal to draw a seasonal timeline series of the resource availability and grounds specific to the gears employed in each village. Many studies have been conducted to determine when communities on newly placed reefs have reached a point of equilibrium. This ecological stability seems to be reached after two to three years. Seasonality has been observed to be the second major factor to affect the quantitative species composition of assemblages. The effect of seasonality, however, seems to be mitigated in the course of a year. Inputs are to be generated from the fisher log books, analysed and compared with the benchmark data of ICARCMFRI from these sites and zones with respect to the specific gears and crafts.
